I enjoyed the movie and my 3 kids did as well, however, their dad and I thought it was too similar to and not as good as Cars. It had funny parts but the humor was not as upstanding as other films in its class.
The movement of the Planes movie was just incredible. I was thinking during the movie that if we were watching it in 3D, I would think I'd feel sick! It was so realistic even as a 2D film! It always amazes me how the production crew gets the facial expressions right on and just the overall mechanics of the characters (vs human movements) seems to be spot on! All of that is impressive in itself!
Storyline was so-so, but I would take my children again and will probably own it once it comes out on DVD. It wasn't terrible and definitely not below average!

My 6 year grandson just love it. He sat in his seat the hold time. And for me I can say that I enjoy this movie also. This was a nice time for a grandmother and grandson to spend time together the day before his birthday...... I can't wait to take him to more movies......This was a great kids movie....

I loved the movie Cars, was not very crazy about Cars 2 and Planes wasn't anything special like the original Cars movie was. I would probably wait for it to come out in video for your kids to watch.

Although it was a cute movie, it wasn't able to establish a real deep story line and special bonds with the characters like you could see and feel in the movie "Cars". The animation was good quality and it was cool to hear some familiar voices playing the characters, but it really was a short film that felt like it could have been a straight to DVD film.
It wasn't a horrible movie but I did sit in my seat towards the end thinking the following thoughts, "Was that it? That's a love story? and Who's baby is this?
(The children were getting so bored. At one point a 1 year old-ish child all the way from the front row wandered to my boyfriend and I all the way in the back. Bad parenting to begin with but you could just tell the kids were no longer interested past the first 30 minutes.) Just wait to rent it.

The creator of Cars have done it again. Excellent movie. The digital version felt like a 3D movie in that I was flying. Can't wait to see the 3D movie and to purchase the DVD set.
